Martial has been left out of the France squad for the World Cup and that, coupled with the ongoing frustration of sitting behind Sanchez in the pecking order, has apparently resulted in a desire to leave the Red Devils.

The Chilean's arrival crushed Martial's game time, and happiness, which has resulted in the player deciding to depart Old Trafford in the coming months.

Although Manchester United's hierarchy are reluctant to sell Anthony Martial, manager Jose Mourinho is prepared to let the winger leave, according to reports. For now, it's premature to talk about it. Anthony will speak later to explain all of this.

Philippe Lamboley claims United want to extend Martial's deal and do not want the Frenchman to leave.

I think that when Man United, who are the most powerful club, can not come to an agreement after eight months it is because they really don't want to make him a key player. That's why this decision has come - it's a well-thought-out decision.

Martial is under contract for next season and the United also have the option for the 2019-20 season.

It would appear, however, that a transfer request has yet to be handed in to the club as Lamboley added: "It is very important to remember that he is under contract, that Manchester United will have the last word and we will respect the decision of the club". "Today, Anthony is disappointed because he has shown for three seasons the love he has for the club and its supporters".

"I think he has done his best over the last three years". Without the unconditional support of the fans he would have already asked to leave United.

"It is important to remember that this season he scored 11 goals and provided ten assists in five months. Anthony just wants to play, to feel happy and connect with his coach, that is essential".

"I will not comment on the consequences of the January transfer window".

"Everyone will have their opinion but I think he needs to resume his career". The time has come.
